NX1982 Selection Filter

NX1982 Selection Filter

NX1982 Selection Filter

When you open the selection filter, there can sometimes be quite a few Types to select from. Many of them we likely will never select. Most of them rarely select. Most of the time we select particular types like "Solid Body".

Currently when you open it, they are all in alphabetical order. Is there a way in Customer Defaults to change the order to pin certain types at the top of the list so we dont always need to scroll down the list to find what we want?

My brain is like a sponge. A sopping wet sponge. When I use it, I seem to lose more than I soak in.

RE: NX1982 Selection Filter

I have never seen the ability to customize this list.
Does "selection priority" help ?
Try press "End" on the keyboard when the quick pick dialog is up.

RE: NX1982 Selection Filter

As silly as it may sound. I find I can record a macro to change the selection filter and it works. I may just make him a button to switch that. He can place the button next to his filter and make it easy to switch it. lol

I tried with Journal but it doesnt seem to record that. Is it possible to turn a macro into a toggle option? Every time you hit the button it would switch back and forth between Solid Body and No Selection Filter?
